Remscheid, Germany - 23rd September 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
Katja took me and the little raccoon to her work place. In our lunch break we took a walk in the city centre. Because Katja is working close to the city hall this was our first stop.

The city hall was originally built in 1906, but was nearly destroyed in World War II and than rebuilt in a more modern style. Its tower is 48 m high.

The large open space in front of the city hall is the market place. A farmers market is held here twice a week.

There is a pillar with a lion statue on this place. The lion is the heraldic animal of Remscheid. In the background you can see the shopping mall.

This is the water tower, close to the city hall. As Remscheid was built on top of a hill, you can see those two towers (water tower and city hall) from far away.

Those tenaments were painted recently.

We found this shady playground...

... and lovely traditional houses.

Back in the city centre Katja showed us the central bus station.

Here you can see the company building of the local newspaper "Remscheider General-Anzeiger".

And this is the public library.

We reached the rear side of the shopping mall than. You can also see the city hall tower and the theatre on the left side.

Katja decided to get something for lunch - we were almost starving. We went to the shopping mall and bought french fries with onions.

Later I was invited by Katja's colleage to go on a short holiday trip with her to Palatinate Forest. Forest sounds great :D

I'm really curious - this forest is a designated nature park and the largest forest area within Germany.

Love
Owen
